Robbie Burns Supper
The tradition of having a Burns Supper started in 1801, just five years after his death. Nine men who knew Burns celebrated dinner in Burns Cottage in Alloway, Scotland to celebrate his life and works. The dinner focussed on a good haggis, recitation of his poetry and singing of his songs to toast the memory of their friend and hero. The group met again, this time on his birthday, January 25th. Little did they know that it started a global tradition known for its celebration of Robbie Burns and Scottish heritage in general.
Each January, The Kincardine Scottish Pipe Band arranges a dinner in his honour, following a traditional Burns Supper of music, poetry and memories of Burns. For more information about the tradition of having a Burns Supper, see: The Legend of the Burns Supper.
On January 21st, 2017 the Kincardine Scottish will be hosting the Robbie Burns Supper at the Royal Canadian Legion starting at 6pm. Tickets available at J'Adorn, 770 Queen Street, Kincardine, Ontario.
We hope to see you there!
